From the moment we learn that a child is expected, a switch goes off and a parent begins to focus on how to protect that child.

For many years, parents prepare their children to face the world with courage. They also want them to flourish and succeed. It's a daunting task.

The most threatening predators are people who seek children and prey on their naivete, vulnerabilities and insecurities. Preventing the sexual abuse of a child takes more than just a parent's awareness. Children need to be educated and prepared.

Holy Family Catholic Church is working with parents to safeguard children with a Toughing Safety Program.
